NUTRITION TIP: Why drink Pu-erh Tea?
Pu-erh tea is cultivated exclusively in the Yunnan province of China and derives its name from the Pu-Erh County in which it is grown.
Health Benefits of Pu-Erh Tea
1. Increases Energy
Thanks to the caffeine in pu-erh tea, drinking a cup a day can help to increase your energy levels and focus. Every 8-ounce cup of pu-erh tea contains about 60 to 70 milligrams of caffeine compared to the 105 milligrams in a standard cup of coffee. This makes pu-erh tea a good choice for people who find themselves too jittery after just one cup of coffee.
2. Cleanses Toxins and Free Radicals
Pu-erh tea uses its oxidative properties to deliver increased levels of oxygen, which enhances circulation and blood flow. By delivering more oxygen to the brain, pu-erh tea can help combat headaches and migraines and reduces free radicals that can cause serious illnesses.
3. Protects Bone Health
It's no secret that bones lose density and become weaker as you age. The risk of serious bone conditions such as osteoporosis increases as you get older and can result in hospitalizations in severe cases.
Many things can contribute to the weakening of bones including inactivity and a lack of important vitamins and minerals. Smoking and drinking can also be contributing factors to developing bone diseases as you age.
4. Aids in Weight Loss
Pu-erh tea improves digestion and can help relieve symptoms of constipation thanks to the existence of lovastatin in these tea leaves. The antioxidants and polyphenols in pu-erh teas also aid in digestion and fat breakdown.
Studies have shown that pu-erh tea can help you lose weight when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Pu-erh tea suppresses the synthesis of fatty acids, which can help your body stop producing higher levels of fat. That doesn't simply mean you can eat a high-fat diet, drink pu-erh tea and lose weight. To achieve any weight loss, you'll still need to exercise regularly and eat healthy foods.
Western Australia Insight # 1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
20 somethings are kids with self-earned money. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In Lancelin I had the chance to connect with my inner child. Every RV park had a jumping pillow and we got to sand board in Lancelin 👯♀️
The carefree mind, the non-fear to fall and the present moment were all I had in my mind this day. And I reconnected with it by just playing! Jumping, sliding, running, laughing... I was a kid spending my money in reconnecting with myself. And I am so proud that as a generation we are giving ourselves more time to reconnect with our inner child’s. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How do you reconnect with your inner child?

It's possible to escape every day, even without moving an inch. Think of a place you love, and breathe it all in 🌊😌
Where's your happy place? Ours would have to be beautiful Rottnest Island, WA.

“Don’t choose unhappiness over uncertainty” ~ I heard this recently (can’t remember where) but it is such a brilliant quote that relates to tackling your fears head on, in the pursuit of your dreams. This is definitely a good one if you’re looking for an epic 2019! ✨
